We walked from our hotel to the beach, might be better to drive or take the bus, but it was worth the trek for this free experience. The beach has a geothermal pool and the water by the beach is also supposed to be geothermal...More

Stopped here and had a nice picnic. Pretty place and lots of locals seemed to be enjoying the beach and soaking. Some neat statutes nearby. Our guide told us the sand was brought in from Morocco.

this is a nice place with an imported sand beach. You can walk down and stick your feet in the water, if you want.

Small ankle deep pool, as well as hot tub, beach, and steam room! Well worth the couple bucks you have to pay to get into! Don't forget you are in Iceland and the beach isn't going to be warm!

We thought that this was a warm water beach and it's not. However it was nice to visit. It is a beach and there is a hot tub. Nice for a walk. Free parking and free in the summer form what I can gather.

They can accommodate small bags but there no real room for full size luggage. Check the hours of operation as they are limited and the facilities are quite small. Cheers

I think it will be open because it's a free attraction, so there's no possibility to close it. But I think water will be so cold altough the geotermal way
